Food on Friday: Cherries and Almonds

ON

I feel there should be a song about these besties – cherries and almonds – a great flavour combo.  Your dish doesn't need to have both in it but if it does – great!

Cherries go well with:

Almonds
Beetroots
Brandy
Butter
Chocolate
Cinnamon
Citrus juice
Cloves
Cream cheese
Duck
Goat's cheese
Ham
Pastry
Port
Rose wine
Sago
Sour cream
Squab pigeons
Thick cream
Tongue
Vanilla ice cream
White wine
Yoghurt


I would add tuna to this Stephanie Alexander list.

Almonds go well with:

Apricots
Berries
Cherries
Chicken
Chocolate
Cream
Dried fruit
Honey
Peaches
Quinces
Rice
Trout
Vanilla



To build this collection of cherry and almond goodness, just put your name and the name of the dish into the first Mr Linky box and paste the url for your post about the dish into the second.

I hope you take time to check out some of the other links.  To help you choose which ones, I have created this Pinboard to which I'll be pinning the links as fast as I can.

Happy linking!

  1. Hi, Carole,
    My Ma's recipe for Kannoli tar-Rikotta uses roasted almonds and glace cherries - a twofer! The filling would also be nice in cream puffs.

  13. Carole,
    I'm fortunate to be the recipient of a giant bag of dried Michigan cherries from Traverse City, Michigan. Since I was kinda overwhelmed with all those dried cherries, I've been stuffing them into everything from muffins to cookies to . . . well . . . stuffing. And a pizza, of course, as we love our Friday Night Pizza Nights around here.

    Thanks for hosting!

  22. Not sure if this is familiar to all, but in Canada in the 1960-70s Borden's Condensed Milk used to have the recipe I posted on the side of their can. It was a favourite of everyone, and no baking either!

  26. My simple "recipe" can be made with either frozen or fresh cherries. Not that they are in season, I made it with fresh ones for guests. It was well worth pitting the cherries! Thanks for hosting Carole!

  38. Even thought I love the combination of cherries and almond, sad to say that I have never on my site. Bummer! Guess I'll just be checking out everyone else's wonderful recipes.

  39. I posted Door County Cherry Dessert, which calls for pecans or walnuts, but almonds would be perfect. When I make a cherry dessert, I generally prefer almonds. You are so right, Carole, they go together so well.

    This is an easy dessert, more or less a "dump" cake.

  64. Hi Carole, I left you a couple of my favourite recipes using almonds. I've done each of these multiple times, one savoury and one sweet. Sicilian Pesto uses tomatoes, which are abundant this time of year in Canada! And Baked Chocolate Pudding is just to die for. Hope you like them!
